the most wonderful

time of the year, right??

We've been enjoying much of the fun of the season. Baking cookies, Christmas concerts, piano recitals...the stuff that life with 5 kids brings.

brian + julie

happy day!! Uncle Brian and Julie got married!! Jason was the best man, Abby the flower girl (the littles were 'honorary flower girls'), and the boys were ushers, and I did a reading from Colossians.
Emily said the other day afterwords, "mom, Brian and Julie got married. They're in love!" :)
We are so, so happy for them. Brian was beaming. It was emotional. We were honored to be a part of their special day and we pray that they have a long, happy, Christ-filled marriage.

Ben turned 12 today!!
I think I say the same thing every year....I can't believe how fast time flies.
I wish it would slow down.

He is a wonderful kid.
Very kind. Loves sports.
Really proud of who this kid is becoming.
Love that he made me a mom all those years ago...
ready or not.
I was so excited to be a mom...to be his mom.
Love the big brother he his to his siblings.
Love this kid.
Happy Birthday Ben!
